Slow Cooker Candied Soy Shredded Pork


Want to hear something really exciting?!  Trader Joe’s has fresh riced cauliflower in their refrigerated vegetable section.  It’s nothing but cauliflower.  You will be just as excited as I am if you have made fresh cauliflower rice.  Cauliflower rice is probably one of the most annoying things to make.  I don’t understand how cauliflower can manage to get all over the place while making it.  Thank you Trader Joe’s for making my life a little bit easier!  I tried it out for the first time with this meal, and it tasted great!  I sauteed the cauliflower rice in some olive oil, garlic, and a little bit of soy sauce.  It paired perfectly well with this shredded pork!
